“DAMN?”, “Nice!”, “Hey baby!” , “You don’t wanna talk?”
Seriously. How can any woman resist such erudite come-ons?
Certainly watching this woman spend 10 hours walking the streets of New York City made us all want to take a shower.
Inspired by his girlfriend, who told him about what was happening to her every day, video director Rob Bliss collaborated with Hollaback!, a not-for-profit global movement, to film her walking. Just walking.
Using a camera strapped to his backpack, Bliss strode ahead of Shoshana Roberts for 10 hours, capturing the continuous verbal harassment by men directed towards her. At one point in the video a man walks alongside Shoshana in silence for over five (whole) minutes, despite her obvious discomfort.
Have a look:
Shoshana’s overall experience walking alone through the streets of NYC in jeans and a T-shirt can be summed up as: exhausting, demeaning, and scary.
